As you know, CNN journo Jim Acosta’s reporting was somewhat disrupted by a crowd of people at a Trump rally in Tampa chanting “CNN sucks!” Acosta later longed for a time “we were all on the same team” and wished some Trump supporters at the rally would have thought about the children before chanting:
Another snapshot from Trump’s Tampa rally, I tried to take a picture with a father and his daughter while people yelled “CNN sucks” in my face. I am sorry that this little girl had to see that. pic.twitter.com/DIHPpCdbb6

It’s all about keeping the rhetoric respectful for the kids, unless it isn’t, as Dana Loesch reminded Acosta:
You should have seen your network’s townhall that I attended. https://t.co/0b0xuEy6lg

Just imagine if those tables had been turned!
@Acosta ‘s wars would have been really offended by the things people were calling and chanting to you.

So much triggering would have ensued.
But it was ok for Acosta to start screaming at the president in front of the children during Easter celebration.

Where was @Acosta for the 8 years of Obama’s Presidency. I don’t remember him screaming questions about Operation Fast & Furious or about Benghazi or about the kids Obama had in cages. Where were you Jim. Kissing his ass that’s where

This is being trumpeted as dangerous for Acosta. Yet, Shannon Bream was mocked for feeling unsafe outside Supreme Court. Double standard https://t.co/Ya9Yzi9xQ2
